about

Kush Arora’s "Vision" is a clear-eyed, uncompromising realization of riddim culture in the here & now.

Growing up listening to Mafia & Fluxy, Xterminator, Madhouse Records on rotation with now cult-classic Louie Culture cuts and the Indo-Caribean flavours of Apache Indian, Kush Arora has long carried the iconic soundscape of dancehall close to his heart. Songs from these artists, whether they rumble through a soundsystem on a night out, remixed on jungle tapes, or from the artist’s roots, never felt out of place. With every new sound, even those seemingly unconnected to each other, everything began to coalesce. Arora’s palette shows appreciation for these connections - 2006’s Bhang Ragga captured “dancehall bhangra in future dub” - and Visions continues this tradition, featuring nods to the latest fusions of sound emerging from the British capital and beyond.

EP opener Pon My Block is the result of a recurring introspective curiosity that saw Arora craving a blend of dancehall vocals and recent incarnations of drill. It is fierce and fiesta-ready in equal measure, with featured vocalist 45diBoss lending the track an unmistakably Kingston sound for a freshness that crosses continents. On Wine an Go Down, Blackout JA harnesses a classic bashment feel - ruffneck meets rootsy vocals that come together perfectly. Certified crowd-energizer Desert Prince Riddim reflects the sheer danceability of Arora’s productions; a contagious bass-synth weapon cut with echoing percussion. Bronze Riddim, in the artist’s words, channels the madness from the past two years, written at the outset of 2021 and experiments with similar concepts.

An attempt to understand our limitless influences - past, present and future - lies at the core of Vision.
